It doesn't get any more central than this - 51st and 5th in midtown Manhattan. We upgraded our room to a suite and were glad we did as it provided us with just a bit more space to move around. The room was very clean and the bathroom was a nice size albeit a bit small. The bed and bedding was comfortable and of good quality. My only complaint was that the air conditioning was quite loud and we found it woke us up during the night when it was going on and off - which was a bit annoying. One other important observation is that this really what I would call a hotel - its more of a club that has a hotelling component to it so there is no onsight restaurant and no formal foyer when you arrive (just a small reception desk with self check in). Not a deal breaker at all but a completely different experience versus checking in at a hotel.
